Tiling Services in Colchester
On all jobs we undertake we take extra care to ensure the job is tidy from start to finish. Covering up areas that are likely to get messy by using dust sheets and laying tarpaulins where wet cutters are used.
We can undertake all tile removal if you would rather not do this yourself.
Before we commence any job we set out the job properly to make sure there are no thin cuts anywhere. This ensures that the overall finish of the job is fantastic quality.
Before we start a job we make sure the walls are prepared properly in order to get the most out of the tiling, therefore giving the ultimate finish. If the walls needs plastering or skimming we are able to do this for you. We always use a primer on new plaster- this enhances the tile-adhesive bond and ensures that everything sticks with maximum effect.
Floors can be screeded to create a flat finish. On floors with a residue of glue or other forms of sticking adhesives where carpet has been laid or vinyl tiles, the floor will need to be screed. This stops the floor adhesive corroding and hence stopping the adhesive flaking and the tiles lifting at a later stage.
Floors (Floorboards or chipboard)
These floors need to be lined with a minimum of 9mm ply screwed down. This then strengthens up the floor and stops any movement. This will subsequently stop the tiles lifting or moving at a later stage.
Pipe boxing in/wall channelling for cables etc.
We can undertake any boxing in needed around pipes. We are also able to carry out wall channelling for electricity cables for under tile heating.
At Four Counties we know how to properly tank a room and can undertake this for those who wish to have peace of mind. Tanking is a form or thick paint which seals and waterproofs the wall stopping tiles falling off at a later stage.
Under Tile Heating
When laying undertile heating we always use WEDI board or similar to layer the floor. The reason for this is to get the most out of your new heating mat or cable. This ensures that the heat will rise quicker making the room more efficient. (If you simply placed the mat straight onto concrete this causes heat to transfer to the concrete first, taking longer to heat the room and ultimately costing you more).
Many people go straight onto the concrete then start spreading the tiling adhesive- this is incorrect. Once we have laid the mat or cable we then screed to give a nice flat finish this will also stop any damage occuring to the heating mat or cable.
At Four Counties we can cater for fixing all types of tiles from basic ceramic right through to marble, natural stone products and bespoke custom design options.
We can cater for all styles including: normal style, brick bond, diamond designs, pattern insets/borders & Herringbone
Whatever the style the chances are we can cater for it.
Cutting & Shaping
We have the experience and specialist equipment to cut holes in tiles such as shower pipes, round sockets, pipes & cables.
“Both Myself and my wife had Matthew round to tile our kitchen. Matthew was very tidy and made an excellent job. He was very competitive in his pricing and finished the job on time which was good. He comes across as very professional and his knowledge is good too. Because of the excellent job he made we have since decided to get Matthew back to tile our Bathroom. Well done Matthew.”Keith & Denise
